Summary

The young, beautiful, and relentless Lara Cameron has amassed international wealth and power, with equal success in affairs of the heart. But an angry ex-lover has vengeance in mind - a motive that could cost Lara the empire she struggled a lifetime to build. Setting the stage in Scotland and Nova Scotia, maestro of mystery Sydney Sheldon lures his readers down a chain of intrigue through Chicago, New York, London, Rome, and Reno. Hollywood's Roddy McDowall narrates the shocks and turns of Lara's climb from a past she tries to suppress.

Listening to this is painful

The man reading this book is absolutely awful. He clearly doesn’t understand the brief as I believe he dramatised a lot of the main characters lines very incorrectly. Proving he clearly doesn’t understand the essence of her character

Redo needed

Rody McDowell is not a very good book reader and the recording is lower quality than is now routine. The book is pretty good Sheldon.

muffled audio

Great Sidney Sheldon story as usual. However the muffled audio somewhat took away from the experience

The audio is mushy

It's a good story. The recording is mushy sounding. It's not because of Roddy McDowall. It's a poor quality recording.

Good story but the narration was monotone.

How could the performance have been better?

Different dialects/voices for the characters. It was difficult to understand where one character ended and another began.
